D is for......Digital Storytelling

We as teacher's can employ (PowerPoint, multimedia, Flash, Dreamweaver, etc), which are great ways to integrate technology into the curriculum. Not only do the students learning basic computer skills, but also incorporating language arts and writing skills. The objective of integrating technology into lessons is for the students to gain competency and confidence in the use of technology.Digital Storytelling is a another great way for students to combine writing (a script, presented in a voice-over), images or short video clips, sound effects, and music into a movie, students can find a way to become producers of content as well as consumers.

  • Integrating technology can be done in an enoronmours amount of ways. I think this is a great way to motivate students to write and create their own stories. They are not just writing on paper. I think it is very important to allow students different ways to create the end product of an assessment.
